Season two was released in early 2023
Systemic is an award-winning podcast that uses audio diaries and interviews to document the lives of people working to create change. In Season 2, the show follows a diverse group of educators, students and parents during a school year in which debates around race and equity in public education reached a fever pitch. Season 1, produced in the wake of George Floyd's death and the ensuing protests, follows Black Americans working to reform policing from inside and outside the system.
